How to make poinsettias out of paper:

 

1. Cut out the flower petals using the template you downloaded above. The template includes 4 sets of petals. Cut 3 of each.

 

2. Trace the other items on the  correct colored card stock and cut them out.

 

3. Add glitter to your two yellow/gold pieces of cardstock (not the center of the paper poinsettia).  If you are using powder glitter follow this process: Place the item on a piece of paper; apply white glue all over the item and then sprinkle powder glitter all over the glue. Once the glue dries brush off extra glitter and then remove the item from the paper. Tip: Dab on a thin layer of mod podge over your glitter to avoid shedding!

 

4.Create simple creases on the leaves as pictured.

 

5. Cut an approximately 1.5 cm slit in the center-bottom of each petal.

 

6. Overlap the 2 sides of the slit and glue them.

 

7. Cut out a round piece of cardstock for the base of the flower.

 

8. One by one, glue the large petals around the outer edge of the base.

 

9. Now take the second-largest petals and glue them inside the layer of large petals.

 

10. Glue the second-smallest petals next and then glue the small petals in the center of those.

 

11. Glue the center if the flowers inside your circle petals, and the leaves around the flower, tucked under the layer of the largest petals.

 

12. Keep adding the other items around the outer edge of the base and making sure that they are visible under the outer petals.
